Does the New Outlook for Windows spell the end of the Classic Outlook for Windows? The short answer is no, and here are some reasons why.
Microsoft has recently announced the launch of the New Outlook for Windows, a free email and calendar app that is included with Windows 11 and can also be installed on Windows 10.
The New Outlook for Windows is designed to offer a modern and simplified user interface, intelligent features, and cross-platform compatibility. It effectively replaces the existing Windows Mail application aimed at the home/consumer market which Windows 10 and earlier had included natively.
Some organisations may wonder what this means for the Classic Outlook for Windows, which is part of the Microsoft 365 suite and has been the preferred email client for many professionals and businesses for years.
In conclusion, the New Outlook for Windows is not the end of the Classic Outlook for Windows, but rather a complementary and alternative option for users who prefer a simpler and more modern email and calendar app. So, although the New Outlook for Windows is being marketed as the preferred option for both Windows Mail and Classic Outlook users, its lack of enterprise features makes it a non-starter for larger organisations at this point in time. Whether it becomes viable in the future remains to be seen.
